Public release of Megha-Tropiques SAPHIR and ScaRaB Level-1A and Level-1A2 data – January 2013

SRO and CNES have announced the public release of Level-1A and Level-1A2 products of Megha-Tropiques SAPHIR and ScaRaB. Version v1.05 of these data are routinely transmitted to ICARE since January 24, 2013 and are available as “orbit-wise” as well as “segment-wise”. This new version includes the latest calibration revisions for both sensors and is currently under evaluation.
Although earlier versions (v1.02, v1.03, v1.04) are also available from the beginning of the mission (from October 13, 2011), they are based on interim radiometric and geometric calibrations and should be used with caution and primarily for qualitative use.
